The insurrectionists control many American cities, where nearly half the population lives.
The civil unrest in many US cities is not without a great deal of orchestration from opportunists and marxists. This spring they launched a war on the nation. The Antifa marxist totalitarian fascists are at war, but the US states and federal govt. is not yet at war with the insurrectionists.
The civil unrest largely follows the electoral maps from the 2018 congressional elections. Anywhere in the USA where leftists enjoy more than 60% support at the polling places, the insurrectionists have set up shop and have begun stirring up unrest through marches and protests. But those constitutionally protected activities have turned into vandalism, blockades, violent assaults, murders, fires, explosions, and outright occupations of the seats of power in city & state govts.
Perhaps only after the November elections will we see the real war begin? the Antifa/BLM inc. orchestrators hope the political right continues to ignore the grave threat and pretend it's all a bad dream.
Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York City, Washington, and other traditional radical left cities are the 'powder kegs' of violence and destruction. The difference is now there is a breakdown of civility and many operatives appear to be doing the bidding of foreign govt. subversives. The classic narrative is the claim to understand and speak for an underserved population. Yes, often it's an ethnic group which has failed to succeed on a broad scale. But the race hustlers have made millions by shaking down corporate boardrooms using boycotts & protests as a weapon. Many ethnicities have excelled in the USA despite their diversity and slim percent of the population.
The agitators are more often not part of the ethnic minorities they claim to be 'in solidarity' with. In a recent Oklahoma City march, a driver passing by yelled to the group, "Where are the black folks you claim to represent?" that is because Antifa is not a movement of ethnic minorities. Antifa is largely a group of college students & campus culture, where professors have preached a narrative of the evils done by the USA through history.
The political left radicals are at war with all of the institutions of American history. That includes US faith traditions and religious values. It also includes the traditional family unit & cultural values of family. It's also a battle of economic doctrines about who owns property and how much a private citizen gets to keep, when a dollar is earned through work.
